So it's been a while....

Wow, so it's been like 2 years!! Obviously I'm not all that good at this blogging thing, but I'm gonna work on that! So I have 2 years of crafty things I've made to get caught up on! Oh my, where to start where to start?! So btw, I'm marrieddddd! I know crazy, right?! And it's actually already been almost 2 years, it's just right around the corner. Time truly flies when you're having fun. So I'm just going to categorize the craftiness and just throw a bunch of pictures out there! This post will entail party items: decorations, invitations, etc. And go!

So as I mentioned previously, I got married! And I made a lotttttt of stuff for our wedding just to make it more affordable for us. Here are some crafty things that helped make our day fantastic:

 I used an invitation kit that I actually purchased from Wal-Mart to make our invitations. I printed everything, made the initial card and wrapped the whole thing with ribbon to keep it together.

This is a picture mash up of our wedding decor! I cut tulle into squares to gather up a few mints then tied it off with a bit of string. I used a label template I found here on Pinterest that I cut out and also tied into the string. The bookmark program I created myself in a word document. The fonts were free fonts I found through Pinterest. The wine glasses I totally thrifted for! You can find cheap wine glasses anywhere, it's a very affordable and I think elegant look. The mirror centerpiece and artificial flower heads I purchased off ebay in bulk. The Mr. and Mrs. are wood that my dad helped me make. I printed the words out, traced them onto wood and my dad then cut them out. Some spray paint, and walah! Beautiful :). Also in this picture is the little ring pillow that I sewed. I used a button shaped like a snowflake (our theme if you haven't noticed, fitting since it was in January!) to sew in the center and then used a ribbon to tie the rings next to the snowflake. And last but not least, the table numbers that I made. Card stock paper, some layering of lace and ribbon with a bit of bling, and lots of glue to hold it all together! So that's our wedding in a nut shell! At least the decor parts ;).

It was an amazing day :).
